With the increasing usage of the internet and social media sites, the world is getting crazier day by day. Some people are becoming so weird these days that they can do anything and everything to get popularity and fame out them.
Yes! that is Facebook likes, not the list of friends, nor the contacts, the number of likes or reactions on one’s posts or photos has literally become the short term goals of everyone. People are so desperate about likes that they sometimes end up doing some weird stunts to increase the level of popularity enjoyed by that person.
But as everyone knows there is always a limit to everything and nobody has the right to play with the life of any person in order to get famous on social media. And this bizarre incident proves it all, read the whole story here…
In a strange and shocking incident, a man hanged a baby out from a window of a 15th-floor apartment in order gain 1,000 likes on his Facebook post.
The disgusting incident took place in Algeria and the man has now been sentenced to two years in prison. He had posted pictures of the child being dangled out of the window, with a single hand gripping the back of his t-shirt 150 feet above the street.
The person, whose name has not been disclosed, clicked a photo of himself while he was holding the baby from clothes from a high-rise building and posted on Facebook with caption, “1,000 likes or I will drop him”.
However, the prank backfired on him, as furious Facebook users reported him to the police and complained about the man and asked the cops to arrest him for child abuse. The Algerian police arrested the man under the charges of putting the baby in danger.
As per Al Arabiya, the man hanged the baby from the 15th floor but the man is alleging that the photo has been altered by social media users. He stated,
“The picture was taken in a balcony with protective barriers. These were removed.”
Father of the baby also pleaded the court to release the man as he was “just playing a game.” But the judge found the photo absolutely clear and sentenced him two years of jail.
This is definitely one of the weirdest and very dangerous incidents that we have come across. It undoubtedly raises a question on the existence of humanity!
